The collection will be confined to English and Ameri- can examples representing the work of cabinet-makers of the seventeenth, eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Among the earlier pieces of special interest will be shown a carved Bible box of the middle of the seventeenth century, some carved chests and a rare leather-covered traveling chest or trunk of the English oak period, bearing the date of 1686. Philadelphia, m the eighteenth century, was one of the principal centers for the manufacture of the best mahogany furniture in Chippendale and Shera- ton styles, and the collection will include many fine pieces from the old families of Philadelphia and vicinity, and representative examples from other sections of the country. Esther Singleton, in "The Furniture of Our Forefathers" (vol. II, p. 612), gives the following list of Philadelphia cabinet-makers from the Directory for 1785; "Joseph Allen, William Bromewell, Thomas Brown, Isaac Barnet, Thomas Bowen, Bartholomew Baker, Bryan and Nicholson, Samuel Claphamson, Adam Cressmon, John Douglass, Kearns Dowling, Joseph Dilvan, David Evans, Elfrith and Clarke, Josiah Elfrey, John Easther, William Edward, Alexander Frazer, Ford and Aitken, Christian Fox, Conrad Feerman, Jonathan Gos- teUow, Thomas George, Daniel Hayes, Edward Hargery, Christian Kearne, Leonard Kislar, John Kreider, Peter Lesler, Nicholas Lloyd, Benjamin Lyn- dall, John Meyers, William Moore, John Miller, Richard Palmer, William Rigby, George Shaw, John Savidge, Samuel Sime, John Townsend, Thomas Tuft, Daniel Trotter, Sr. and Jr., Francis Triemble, Andrew Vowiller, John Webb, Sr. and Jr., James Watkins, Jacob Wayne, Sr. and Jr., William Wayne, Sarah Williams, Jacob Winnemore and Samuel Walton. "The Windsor-chair makers were: William Coxe, Ephraim Evans, Benja- min Freeman, John Litchworth, Thomas Miller, Jacob Martin, John Sprow- san, Frances Trumble, William Weddifield, Wear and Cubbin, and John Willis. Chair-makers were George Burford, Ridding Cobly, Paul Hover, Robert Jones, Davenport Marriot, wheel and chair-maker; William Savery, and Joseph Trotter. John Elliott was a looking-glass and medicinal merchant, and James Reynolds, a carver and gilder." 50 BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANIA MUSEUM :i!Mia»»i^ Carved Oak Bible Box.

I, p. 110), where a dressing-table or low-boy by this maker is figured. Mr. Lock- wood also records the name of James GUlingham, whose advertisement, pasted on a claw-and-ball-foot chair of Chippendale style, belonging to Dr. Frank I. Hammond of Providence, R. I., shows him to have been a "Cabinet and Chair Maker in Second Street between Walnut & Chestnut Streets, Philadelphia." New England furniture of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, which, while showing the influence of the English schools, possesses marked charac- teristics of its own, will also be well represented from the collections of prominent collectors. In many European museums, particularly those of Germany and Switzer- land, collections of furniture and utensils, illustrating the domestic life and customs of the people, are shown in separate rooms. No art museums in this country have as yet given special attention to the collection and installation of antiquities of provincial localities where, in former years, the methods of living were uninfluenced by contact with the people of other sections, which is par- ticularly true of the early settlers in Eastern Pennsylvania, who preserved, until recent years, the customs which they had brought with them from the Palatinate and Switzerland. We recognize the arts of the European peasants reflected in the painted wedding chests, the inlaid furniture, the slip-decorated and inscribed pottery, the cast iron stoves with scriptural designs, and the general use of the tulip as a decorative motive. The antiquities of Eastern Pennsylvania, which have been gathered together and will be shown for the first time in this exhibition, include some of these characteristic painted chests; an elaborately inlaid walnut chest bearing the date of 1783 and the name of Maria Kutz, from Kutztown, Berks County; a chest of drawers inlaid with the date 1790; a wardrobe with inlaid date of 1775; decorated cast iron stoves of the eighteenth century; and tulip pottery of the same period. As in the Rhenish provinces of Germany, the household utensils, such as iron toasting forks, lard lamps, stirring spoons and ladles are frequently embellished with incised ornamentations, with dates sometimes inlaid in brass. These relics of the earlier period are now rarely found in use in the German settlements, since the old transplanted customs have gradually disappeared with the coming of a m.ore progressive generation. Much of the furniture is painted with ornamentation in bright coloring, softened and mellowed by the hand of time. A small loom in the exhibit is embellished on one end with tulips and inscribed "Elizabeth Drissell Anno den 9 ten October, 1795. John Drissell his hand Anno 1795." The chest here shown is painted on the front with blue and black six-pointed stars in white circles and in an arched tulip-bordered central panel occurs the inscription: "Num 8 Sarah Schuppin, Anno Christi 1798, 22 Juni." This would seem to indicate that the owner, Sarah Schiipp, was the possessor of at least seven other chests. A singular feature of the decorated furniture and pottery of the Pennsylvania Germans is the exact dating which was placed upon them, even including the days of the month when they were finished. 54 BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANIA MUSEUM BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANIA MUSEUM 55 Pennsylvania-German Heddle. Painted Decoration, Dated 1795. Penns\'lvania-German Dower Chest. Dated 1798. 56 BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANIA MUSEUM The technical side of the subject will not be entirely neglected, as there will be an exhibition of brass furniture handles of different periods and a collec- tion of stencils, used in decorating chairs, settees, tinware, etc., from old Amer- ican manufactories. These patterns were much in vogue on furniture used in the country districts all through the nineteenth century and the earlier designs are quaint and some of them are more or less pretentious. It is planned to make the exhibition as representative of the different English periods as possible, and to show the marked styles of cabinet work which prevailed in \'arious sections of this country. THE COLLECTION OF FAKES AND REPRODUCTIONS vSo much interest has been taken this summer in the display of fakes and reproductions at the Pennsylvania Musetun, not only by collectors whom such •an exhibit naturally most concerns, but also by the general public, that it has been deemed unwise to withdraw from view a feature the usefulness of which had been demonstrated by so marked a success. It will therefore be continued as a permanent exhibit. While the thought of carrying out the scheme originated in the mind of the Director of the Museum, it is now found that in some form the idea had germinated in the minds of a number of persons interested in honest anti- quarian research. The commerce of spurious antiquities has reached such proportions that in every museum there should be a chance for the collector to test his judgment with regard to the real value of objects offered him. The expert antiquary in time acquires an instinctive "feeling" about genuine objects which is some- times bewildering to the untramed eye of the layman. But this cultivated instinct, which by the French is called "flair", of late years has lost much of its value, owing to the class of men who have gone into the business of manu- facturing spurious antiquities. Artists and skilled artisans in every country, who possess the inherited ethnic taste of their forefathers, and who from youth have been bred to see and handle such forms as are peculiar to the ancient artists of their race, have found the trade profitable. Assisted when necessary by men of science, chemistrjr, metallurgy and other sciences have been brought t'o bear upon the result, until in certain classes of objects, even the eye of the expert connoisseur is deceived by the expert manufacturer. I could tell you of innumerable instances to the point, were I not afraid to hurt the fooled pur- chaser's feelings. But the story of the gold tiara of Saitaphernes, the work- manship and metallurgy of which passed the scrutiny of the Louvre experts, and which was purchased by the French Government on their verdict at a high figure, is so well-known a fact that there can be no indiscretion in men- tioning it. Nor is there in connection with the fraud perpetrated on the authorities of an American museum some years ago, when it was discovered that their fine collection of exquisite Tanagra figurines was largely composed BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANIA MUSEUM 57 •of fakes. Similar instances could be given of this mode of victimizing the innocent in this very town. Now, this is another point: Wealthy people are sometimes proud of the large prices they pay for their treasures. But the true collector, while he will, if he can do so, give any amount for the unique or very best specimen he wishes to secure for his collection, feels disgraced, or at least humiliated, if he pays a ridiculous amount for even a good thing which, had he but known it, he could have secured at a lower price, or which he might have bettered at the price he paid. Now, the small collection of fakes displayed at the Pennsylvania Museum is intended as an educational feature of the institution. As it stands, it is but a beginning of what it is meant to be in time in all classes of ancient industrial or decorative art, and it contains as yet little more than ceramics. But in this class it is illiominating ; and its development among all the lines taken up in the Musexim is greatly to be desired. Besides the unstinted approval of Dr. A. H. Sayce of Oxford, when in this city recently, and among the letters and other expressions of commenda- tion received with regard to the idea and its execution, containing an offer of co-operation in the work undertaken for the purpose of educating the Ameri- can public to discriminate between the genuine and the false in the ancient decorative and industrial arts, is one received from Mr. Jacques Seligmann, the eminent antiquary of Paris, from whose letters the following excerpts are taken : "The noble work which you have undertaken so intelligently merits the support of every man who is interested in genuine art. I admire your work, your idea, and you merit the thanks of all your fellow countrymen. "This letter will show you the deep interest which I take in your remark- able undertaking, and will convince you how earnestly it is my desire to be of service to your very splendid effort. I trust and hope that your museum will have the great success which it so well deserves. "You can rely upon me, everything will be done to help you to complete your fcheme and make a success of your idea. I sent the Cooper Institute a very beautiful false stone statue, French, foiirteenth century, which is really worth while to see. You know how difficult it is to get fine forgeries. The manufacturer sells them (as reproductions) to unreliable tradesmen who sell them for old and deceive the buyers." Mr. Seligmann adds that he is sending for the collection a charming for- gery, a statuette of the great Burgimdian epoch. Such special forgeries have been skilfully handled and put on the market and he has had some trouble to trace their provenance. But he has succeeded in purchasing a fine St. Eliza- beth which he is sending as a gift to the Museum for its collection of fakes. Such encouragement from such a man is worth recording and the arrival of the statuette is eagerly awaited. S. Y. S. 58 BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANIA MUSEUM RECENT ACQUISITIONS Among the objects recently acquired is an unusual dish of circular form, in red pottery, with sgraffito decoration through a coating of yellow slip, over which is a mellow, yellowish lead glaze. Around the margin is a broad band of carved conventional floral ornament. In the center is an irregular star or Sheffield Coffee Urn. Eighteenth Century. rosette, on which is etched an Arabic inscription. The ware resembles strongly the lead-glazed, incised and slip-decorated pottery of the eleventh century which has been discovered at Kus, Egypt. This example, however, is from the Province of Mazandaran, North Persia, on the Caspian Sea, and is of the eighteenth century. We are accustomed to think of the sgraffito wares of Etiropean countries, Mexico and the United States, and have learned that this BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANIA MUSEUM 59 Sgraffito Shaving Dishes.

See cut. In the previous issue of the Bulletin an interesting Pennsylvania-German shaving-dish, dated 1793, was described. An illustration of this piece is here shown. Recently a second example, dating from about 1790, was procured by the Museum (see illustration). The inscription around the margin reads: Halt du nur ein wenig still Deine hare seind nit viel Hold still but a little while ; Your hairs are not many. In the center are incised figures of a bird and tree. The bottom or outside of the bowl is decorated with a house and flowers in red and green on a yellowish ground. A remarkably handsome urn of old Sheffield plate, in perfect condition, ■of the last half of the eighteenth century, has been obtained by purchase. The urn is nineteen inches in height, ten and seven-eighth inches in width, and stands on four ball feet. Lions' heads holding rings form handles, and there is a finely engraved band below the lid. It is one of the handsomest specimens •of the kind, owing to its beautiful proportions and the grace of its lines. NOTES New Cases. — The Museum has purchased eight cross-shaped cases for the installation of textiles and objects of small size, which will permit of closer inspection of their contents. Furniture Exhibition. — The special exhibition of old American and English furniture will be installed in the Rotunda and will be opened to the public on November 1st, to continue through the month. * * * American Porcelains. — That portion of the collection of Tucker and Hemphill porcelain with polychrome decoration has been placed in a new case in the East Gallery, adjacent to the white and sepia series from the same early American factory. * * * The special exhibition of Fakes and Reproductions, which was opened on April 1st and continued until October, has attracted such widespread atten- tion and elicited so many letters of commendation from collectors and others throughout this country and Europe, that it has been decided to make it a permanent educational feature of the Museum. BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANIA MUSEUM 61 SCHOOL NEWS The Summer Session of the classes of the Art School, under Mr. Ege, opened July 5th for a session of four weeks. The enrolment was the largest ever made for a summer session, being double that of anv previous year. The new subjects introduced were; Art in the Graded Public Schools, Interior Decoration, Costume Design, Illuminating. The Saturday lecture tours included the University Museum, Memorial Hall, Bryn Athyn (to inspect the architecture and craft work being carried on there under" certain medieval conditions), and local craft shops. Students were enrolled from Montana, Ohio, New York, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Delaware and Penn- sylvania, and represented chiefly the teaching professions. At the end of the course an exhibit of the work accomplished was made, and illustrated talks were given upon art themes. Mr. Joseph T. Bailey has made his prizes for "Nature Study," offered for the first time last year, annual and added to them another prize for work in silver. Mr. Bailey's interest has grown from inspection of the material dis- played at the Annual Exhibition. The Stetson Hat Poster Competition prizes were awarded to Wade Lane, Miss Margaret Craig and Miss Mildred Post, all members of the Illustration classes. Miss Post has also been commissioned to develop several other ideas submitted. The designs were executed after the closing of the School year and demonstrated the professional attainment of our students. Miss Florence Hoopes received the second prize, offered by the Art Alli- ance, for the best water color sketches made at the "Battle of Flowers." The Illustration class is at piesent making sketches for the "Corbin Com- petition" offered by the Corbin Lock Company of New Britain, Conn. Three substantial prizes are offered. Mr. Charles Frederick Ramsej', one of our former students, has been appointed Director of the Art School in connection with the Institute of Arts at Minneapolis, Minn. After lea\ang the School here, Mr. Ramsey studied abroad for some time, and then accepted the curatorship of the Academy of Fine Arts, Philadelphia; and later that of the Carnegie Institute at Pittsburgh, from which he resigned to accept the western post. The establishment of the classes of the Institute upon more practical art lines will be one of the problems given Mr. Ramsey to solve. The School of Industrial Art will be well represented in an exhibition of costumes — theatrical and masquerade — as well as costume designs, photographs, etc., held under the auspices of the National Society of Craftsmen, in their gal- lery, 119 East Nineteenth Street, New York City, opening October 18th and continuing until October the 28th. 62 BULLETIN OF THE PENNSYLVANIA MUSEUM The fourth annual tour of the graduating class of the Textile Department of the School was made after the close of the school year. The party, consist- ing of twenty-five, visited the largest textile mills in this country and some of the most extensive of their kind in the world. Notable entertainments on the trip were a luncheon in Providence, fur- nished by Mr. F. Howe of the Crompton and Knowles Works, and another in Worcester provided by M. J. Whittall Co., at which there were other invited guests. The New England Alumni Association of the School tendered a recep- tion to the party in Providence, and at every stop former graduates came forward to greet the part}' and show their interest in their Alma Mater. The cities of Fall River, Mass.; Providence and Pawtucket, R. I.; Boston, Lawrence, Methucn, Worcester, Springfield and Holyoke, Mass.; Hartford, New Haven and Shelton, Conn., were visited, and the mills inspected covered all branches of the textile industry. It was the most successful and enjoyable tour which has yet been undertaken by the School. Carved .\nd Sgraffito Dish. Northern Persia. (See page 58.)
